Wiiiij zijn de Marsmannetjes!?

Where there's gypsum there HAS been water. Ah, so it still is news? We're knowing and knowing more all the time... And I'm thinking and thinking more each day..: A few little proven facts: If you lock up people in a dark room they tend to shift to a 25 hour day. It's possible for microbes to survive a journey through space. Some chunks of Mars have been chipped of and landed on our planet. Mars has a 25 hour day, and it has had water and a major atmosphere. Conclusion? We're the Martians, have been all along...?
Read all about it (well, about the new-found Gypsum, anyway) on National Geographic's website: 

By Mat Kaplan. The good folks behind the SLOOH Space Camera have made their webcast of Saturday's eclipse available to us. Live coverage will begin at 1300 UTC on January 10. That's 0800 EST and 0500 PST. SLOOH will rely on images from telescopes based around the planet. Enjoy the show!  (click the picture to go to the website with the webcast)
  Hoeven we'm hier aan deze kant van de oceaan Tóch niet te missen!!! Vanaf 14:00 dus.
PS je kunt dus nog wel het staartje van de verduistering zien bij ons: zodra de Zon onder is komt ze op. En dat is ook al volop
de moeite waard, sterker nog, half verduisterd (en dan schijnbaar gigantisch zo laag aan de horizon) is eigenlijk bijna nog mooier dan heel, je ziet werkelijk een bol ipv een schijf!
  De Zon gaat onder om half-vijf, dan zit Maan nog zeker half in de kernschaduw; pas om 17:20 is ze daar volledig uit; nog steeds in de bijschaduw dan, komt daar pas helemaal uit om 18:30.
Het valt dus eigenlijk reuze mee met het 'missen' van deze verduisering voor ons! Maar goed dat we aan de oostkust wonen, wat een mazzel...
